How to Apply

You must complete a two-step application process to be considered for admission to our school.

Primary Application via AMCAS

Submit your primary application electronically through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Once we receive your application from AMCAS, we will email you a link to our secondary application.

Deadline for Primary Application

You should submit your primary application to AMCAS between June 1 and Nov. 15 for consideration by our school.

We strongly encourage you to submit your primary application early.

Secondary Application

When AMCAS has processed your application, you will receive an email confirming that it has been forwarded to the schools you have designated.

When we receive your AMCAS application, we will send you an email acknowledging receipt and explaining how to access our secondary application and pay our processing fee.

Deadline for Secondary Application

You must submit your completed secondary application to our admissions office no later than Dec. 15.

We strongly encourage you to submit your secondary application early.

Completed Applications

Once we receive your completed application, our committee will review it anytime until March 31. We invite approximately 600 applicants for an interview.

Fees

AMCAS charges $160 for an application that includes one medical school designation, and $35 for each additional school you designate.

We charge a nonrefundable fee of $65 to process your secondary application. We will not process it until we receive the fee.

If you’re experiencing financial hardship, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) may waive your AMCAS application fee through its Fee Assistance Program.

If you receive a fee waiver from the AAMC, we will waive our secondary application fee as well.
